ok totally off topic for a greyhound board but...

A clone of celebrated show jumper ET has been born at College Station in Texas, USA. The foal is a genetically identical copy of his sire and will be used exclusively for breeding purposes from the age of three. Despite the risks of genetic flaws developing during the cloning process, scientists report that the foal is healthy and his progeny should be available by 2009.

ET, now 20, won two world cups with Austrian show jumper Hugo Simon but as a gelding he was unable to reproduce naturally. In September 2003, Hugo Simon and Eric Palmer, founders of Cryozootech, decided to clone him. A skin biopsy was carried out while the horse was still competing and the cloning process started in collaboration with the University of Texas.


not really an issue in greyhound racing i guess as dogs are seldom castrated

If you look you will see he was used as a sire.

He has a number of Top off spring and good number of 2nd top offspring a well

I assume none have two heads :loldbz_2:

He never raced

The mating was planned. Because his father was such a good sire they put him to his sister to fix the genes

More that may be of interestand

And keeping a eye on the ancestor loss figures

CeeJay is 45.24% Not sure if you can get higher than this without "cloning"

Head Honcho is 38.89% but in the main it is further back in the pedigree....a great race dog and sire

Daves Mentor is 36.51. another very good racedog. With some nice pups

Another Dog from USA is Scott Free 39.68%. Agreat racedog this one but not so good as a sire.

There is a relation between great race dogs and there ancestor loss % a great many of them appear to be on the high side.

Its fun to check them out for yourself.

Think of a Great dog

click on a nd see what its ancestor loss is

Chances are that he lies just either side of th 30% mark.


On the subject of cloning. While dogs are not castrated many have no testicles so its not beyond the realms of possibilty now that stud fees are so high. We may get to see a clone if a Superstar arises that is infertile!
